Super Smash Bros. Releases For 3DS This Summer and Wii U This Winter

By   /   Apr 8, 2014

Super Smash Bros. will release for the Nintendo 3D this Summer and then followup on the Wii U in Winter, director Masahiro Sakurai announced during a Nintendo Direct event today.

The 3DS version of the game will run at 60 frames per second in stereoscopic 3D; while certain assist characters will run at 30 frames per second. In all the game’s main fighters will enjoy a steady 60 frames per second rate.

On the Wii U, Super Smash Bros. will feature two kinds of online modes: For Fun and For Glory.

In For Fun, stages will be selected at random, all items will be enabled, and it will only record the number of times you’ve won matches. In this mode, only Smash Battles are possible.

In For Glory, there will be no items. Only Final Destination stages will be present and both wins and losses will be recorded. In this mode, 1-on-1 battles will be possible as well. The catch is that every stage in the game now has a completely flat “Final Destination” version, so you’ll have plenty of stage variety.

Sakurai mentioned that online names will be linked to Nintendo Network IDs when playing online. This will enable players to report players that are either griefing, cheating, frequently dropping out or simply causing trouble. Nintendo will take action against such players to keep the community purified.

Super Smash Bros. will feature multiple characters from various Nintendo worlds, including Princess Zelda, Punch-Out’s Little Mac and Sonic the Hedgehog. The Nintendo Direct event today revealed the latest character to be the high-powered Charizard from the Pokemon universe.
